Cute, clean place with everything you need. Short drive to town, lake and hiking trails. Perfect for the two of us plus a dog. The owner is also easy to work with. Thanks for the stay John! The new heater works great but we still used the space heater for the back bedroom.
The cabin was extremely clean, quite, and outside fire pot...
I'd like to go there once more ~~~~~~~~
I would have liked to have given this place a higher rating, but could not recommend it based upon a major complaint (see below). On the plus side, itt has a nice location, on the outskirts of town (quiet), close to a great park, thoughtfully designed kitchen, tastefully decorated, easy entry/access and a nice yard with fire pit. Would advise the owner to work on the whole bed situation. They were rock hard. One of the twin beds had a box spring for a double. The sheets on the beds were of a very thin synthetic material, feeling something like a decorative shower curtain. Being resourceful, we used some spare blankets to pad the mattresses under the bottom sheets, but they were still pretty uncomfortable. And some of the blankets were pretty ratty, as in garage sale leftovers. Other suggested upgrades: better cable and a channel guide, add a couple of towels to the bathroom (hand towel, wash cloth), better storage in the bedrooms (drawers were filled with bed linens). With improvements, we would consider staying here again.
Our stay at the cabin was everything we expected. It was cozy and the kids had a wonderful time playing with the snow. We were very blessed to experience the snow for a day and a half. Memories that will last forever. John was very accessible and Henry was so helpful and kind. My only recommendations will be the quality of the mattresses....other than that I will come back to the cabin and spend some quality time with the family.
Let me start off saying that if I could rate this property 4 and 3/4 stars I would! My only qualm was that the tripadvisor add advertised a Washer and Dryer but they were locked up and not available for use. Other than that, our stay was perfect. It snowed the whole weekend, the street was quiet, the cabin was clean and stocked with everything we needed and John was very helpful when we decided to book an additional night! We have decided that this will be our new spot anytime we come back to Big Bear!
